The Mega Moolah game themes you can play
When it comes to the Mega Moolah slot, most people think of the original African safari themed game that boasts that name.
That is only right, after all it was the game that inspired Microgaming's largest progressive jackpot bonus and for many players, it is the slot of choice that they go to play if they want a chance to win Mega Moolah's progressive jackpot.
However, what is less well known, certainly by players who are not regular players of the game and who only play infrequently, perhaps when the jackpot has reached a sizeable amount, is that you can also play three other themes that are also tied in to the Mega Moolah progressive fund.
In this article, we are going to learn a little more about each of these three slots, which all offer you a chance at the same Mega Moolah jackpot prize that you can land on the original game and in addition, we are going to explore where you can find these slots to play online.
Let's begin by taking a closer look at the first game on the list; Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive.
Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive
- Reels - 5
- Pay Lines - 15
- Min Bet - 0.15
- Max Bet - 45
- Jackpot - 10,000x
If you enjoy the thrill of high octane slots, with 15 pay lines and prefer medium to higher stakes bets per spin, then it is easy to see why the Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive slot will tick all the right boxes. The game has oodles of playability and is a particular favourite for those who enjoy all things Americana.
It is great fun to play on a mobile device as well as a desktop and with Wild symbols and Scatters offering the chance of sizeable pay outs in the base game, of up to 10,000 coins, this is a slot which can reward you with some sizeable wins alone, even if you don't manage to trigger the Mega Moolah Jackpot Bonus Game and that Mega Jackpot prize.
There's also the fantastic Free Spins bonus game which is triggered when you land three or more Police Car Scatter symbols on the reels. This will trigger 10 Free Spins, which each come with a fantastic 5x multiplier, offering you the chance of some big bonus prizes.
Symbols on the reels are based on Americana and the American way of life and include a variety of fast food and other items that you would expect to see on an American road trip such as Cheeseburgers, Cola, Blueberry Pie, Coffee, Fries, as well as a variety of vehicles and the Flaming Tyre symbol is the highest paying in the game. It's nicely presented too with a jaunty soundtrack and simple, yet effective cartoon style graphics.
Mega Moolah Summertime
- Reels - 5
- Pay Lines - 9
- Min Bet - 0.09
- Max Bet - 45
- Jackpot - 30,000
Released in 2014, Summertime has been one of the most popular Microgaming slots, with its cheery theme and the fact it uses many classic symbols, including various fruit, the bar symbol and the lucky 7 on the reels.
The game also comes with a jackpot of 30,000 coins, plus there is a Free Spins bonus round available where a player can win up to 15 Free Spins, complete with a 3x multiplier. Furthermore, any win that is completed with a Summertime Wild symbol is also subject to a 2x multiplier, which does help especially on some of the lower value wins.
This is a simple and enjoyable slot to play and will especially appeal to players who enjoy a more retro vibe with their slot, but who also enjoy the excitement that Free Spins plus a massive progressive jackpot prize.
Mega Moolah Isis
- Reels - 5
- Pay Lines - 25
- Min Bet - 0.25
- Max Bet - 125
- Jackpot - 300,000
Mega Moolah Isis is an Egyptian themed slot based on the famous Egyptian god of fertility. It is a 25-line slot which boasts a very high jackpot prize as well as a number of Egyptian themed symbols on the reels.
Isis is the Wild symbol on the slot and can substitute for all standard symbols on the reel as well as applying a 2x multiplier when used as part of a winning line. The Scatter symbol when landed three, four or five times triggers 20, 25 or 30 Free Spins respectively, as well as landing a pay out for the number of scatters landed. During Free Spins you could earn up to a 6x multiplier on your wins.
Isis is a fantastic game in its own right and while it is a simple game to follow, it has its own sizeable jackpot available, as well as the progressive jackpot prize and it is probably these factors which make it the most attractive of the three other gaming options for Mega Moolah jackpot hunters, aside from the original Mega Moolah slot.
How are these slots set up to utilise the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot?
Each of these slot games was an original Microgaming release in years gone by and the original games were not part of the Mega Moolah jackpot fund. However, seeing as the progressive prize in Mega Moolah can only be won by randomly triggering a bonus game, it is in theory, easy to transfer that triggering mechanism to any other slot.
Of course, you need to ensure that those slots part of the Mega Moolah network contribute to the progressive jackpot fund, so these slots will see a small proportion of each wager added to the progressive prize. Microgaming then simply tagged on the same bonus feature on the Mega Moolah game, onto the three other slots and ensured that your chances of triggering the bonus on each of the four games was exactly the same.
That means regardless of which of the four games you elect to play, you will have the exact same chance of triggering the Mega Moolah jackpot bonus game, and the Mega Jackpot itself.
Where can I play these other Mega Moolah slots?
If you want to play the original Mega Moolah slot, or any of the three other games that are tied into the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot prize fund, then you are best heading off to a reputable Microgaming casino.
Not only do these casinos offer a great value starter bonus which can see you earn 80, 100 or 150 chances to play spins on the Mega Moolah slot for a small deposit, but you will also be able to enjoy a wide range of games at the casino.
These other games that offer a shot at the Mega Moolah jackpot can be more difficult to find available online to play, but a little searching around will often show you a casino that offers at least one and possibly all three different slot games, in addition to the original Mega Moolah slot, to give yourself every opportunity to land that massive progressive jackpot prize.
Mega Moolah themes no longer available
There were two other games linked to the Mega Moolah jackpot fund; The Dark Knight (Batman) and the Lord of the Rings. Both of these games had cinematic reels and it is unfortunate that these two games are no longer available or licenced. One lucky British player won the Mega Jackpot on the Dark Knight slot a few years back.
